LINE: Monster Rancher will have monsters from Monster Rancher and Monster Rancher 2. However, they will appear in a new visual style as the game will feature new graphics. Additionally, players will have access to new features, such as the option to send bred monsters out on expeditions. Another feature includes the ability to create teams of monsters and participate in ranked battles. One thing that will remain the same is the training system from previous Monster Rancher titles. Players will need to finely balance just how much they push or pamper their monsters to unleash their true potential.
